Snow is a 1 year old Lurcher. He came in to our care after being found straying. A supporter found him advertised on Gumtree the day before, so it seems he has been passed around a lot in his young life.
He is a friendly and fun dog who is active and loves his walks. He is a bit of an exuberant teenager at times and so he will benefit from attending a positive reward based training class to learn all the basics and to give him some mental stimulation as he is a bright boy. He is a also very affectionate once he gets to know you.
Snow loves other dogs but he can become frustrated and then reactive on the lead at times so needs his new owner to be happy to continue to work on improving this. He has a good recall and will need to have off lead exercise in his new home. Snow could live with another well adjusted dog. He would prefer a home without young children. Snow will benefit from an owner who has experience of training a young dog and who is willing to put in the effort to ensure he meets his full potential.
Whenever dogs comes into our care they are assessed before they are adopted. This is because the majority of our dogs come from Local Authority pounds and with little or no previous history. This initial assessment period allows us to assess temperament, personality and the best match for a new home. We do not work on a first come first served basis but always strive to find the ideal home for each dog.
All Hope Rescue dogs are neutered, vaccinated, wormed, flea treated and microchipped prior to adoption. A homecheck is required, and you will need to come along to the centre to meet the dog with your own dog(s) and family. Our adoption fee is £180.
